The integration of the liberal arts and career development is a major strength of Ashland University. Through what might be called a synthesis for learning, Ashland University has faced the challenge of, on the one hand, meeting discipline standards for certifications and keeping majors up to date while, on the other hand, preserving the liberal arts and allowing students a measure of flexibility in their course selection. The concept which has evolved contains three primary elements: core requirements, major/minor requirements and elective courses.
Ashland University intends to liberate the minds of students and to challenge each student to reach his or her full potential. Academic Affairs works to see that the teaching and program core of the institution allow and encourage that growth.
Academic Affairs is administered by the Provost through the Academic Council.
